Theme: Tolerance and Peaceful Co-existence

Text: “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.” – Matthew 13:30.

Comment: As the children of God, we should be tolerant in dealing with unbelievers or people of other faiths. This point is clearly made in the parable of the wheat and tares in which our Lord Jesus Christ likened the kingdom of God to a man who sowed good seeds in his field, afterwards the enemy sowed bad seeds.  (Matthew 13:24-29) That Christ said: “Let both grow together until the harvest” shows that before the final end of this evil world, both the good (the sheep) and the bad (the goats) should live together in peace but at the end, the wicked shall be destroyed while the righteous will be granted eternal life by the grace of God. – Matthew 13:30.
